Quick camp hits

Lefty reliever Zach Kroenke, hampered by a minor blister to his middle finger, threw a 15-pitch bullpen session on Friday.

Because he is a Rule 5 claim, and he has to make the squad or be sent back to the Yankees by Opening Day, the Marlins aren’t taking any chances with him. Kroenke can’t miss any extended time, so when the blister popped during his second side session, Minor League pitching coordinator Wayne Rosenthal immediately shut him down.

Within a few days, he should be fine.

* Cody Ross was back in camp on Saturday morning. The starting right fielder missed Thursday and Friday because his wife, Summer, gave birth to their second child on Thursday.
